Welcome to Medical Risk Institute.
Our healthcare facilities and providers suffer from chronic litigation. The frequency and volume of claims extracts tremendous financial resources from the nation’s healthcare system. Even worse these claims create a climate of fear and resentment that impacts the daily lives of physicians, nurses and staff across the country.
Sadly, many view being named a defendant in a medical malpractice suit as an inevitable injustice. This is not accurate. Proactive education and strategy provide the tools to reduce exposure to malpractice litigation.

Courtrooms are flooded with plaintiffs suing physicians and hospitals. The cases range from ordinary claims of medical negligence to exotic allegations of cyber discrimination, administrator negligence, medical battery, predatory lending and even negligent misrepresentation via something as simple as a letter of recommendation.
The good news is with a little training of staff on appropriate procedures, a medical practice or hospital can go a long way to protect itself from these and related claims.
Medical Risk Institute is a firm formed exclusively to provide proactive counsel to the healthcare community to help providers:
a) understand where liability risks originate
b) reduce or remove these risks.
